Your personal economics have a lot of impact on your ability to function within the Wisconsin economy. Things may be financially strong for the state as a whole, but if you're out of work or have recently faced an unexpected expense, it can spark a serious debt problem in your own household. You may be one of many people in this state who had to have surgery this year or who had to pay for much needed car repairs.
When you first realized you were financially in over your head, you likely did what many other Wisconsin residents do in similar situations: You tried to handle it yourself. Perhaps, you tightened your purse strings and started packing lunches from home for work instead of eating out. Maybe you also canceled some magazine subscriptions or regular indulgences, such as manicures or a membership at a local gym.
As a Wisconsin small business owner, you likely could not have felt more proud than the day you opened the doors of your operation. You may have felt excited to get your company running and to provide your customers or clients with the product or service you crafted. For a time, you may have felt your business was on the rise.
